As the slave trade entered its last, illegal phase in the 19th century, the town of Lagos on West Africas Bight of Benin became one of the most important port cities north of the equator. Slavery and the Birth of an African City links the histories of international slave markets to those of the regional suppliers and slave traders, and shows how the African slave trade forever altered the destiny of the tiny kingdom of Lagos.
